Kings assistant coach Brendan Malone resigns

The Kings announced assistant coach Brendan Malone has resigned, effective immediately.

Malone, is the father of head coach Michael Malone.

"As a veteran of 27 seasons in the NBA coaching ranks, Brendan brought a wealth of experience and knowledge to our organization, and we were all fortunate to have had an opportunity to work with him," said Kings General Manager Pete D'Alessandro said in a statement. "His departure is not indicative of a loss of passion for the game or his desire to help our franchise succeed, but rather a decision based on factors associated with the rigors of coaching in the NBA."

Chris Jent is Michael Malone's lead assistant. Corliss Williamson and Micah Nori are the other coaches.

Dee Brown and Ryan Bowen serve assistant coach/player development roles.

"I'm thankful that I had my father on our staff during the summer and throughout training camp as I transitioned into a head coaching role," said Michael Malone. "He was my father long before we became colleagues, and while I'll miss his presence on the bench, he will always be an invaluable source of counsel on all matters basketball and otherwise."
